Creating your own look

It is easy to tune the look and feel of PatternSkin by changing the color and space (margin, padding) settings in the Style Sheet files.

You may also choose to radically change the look and create a PatternSkin-based new skin. This is easier than to create a skin by writing new template files; you can concentrate on how things should look instead of what elements should get displayed.

 

Supported browsers

PatternSkin has been tested successfully on the following browsers:

Line: 20 to 30
 
    • Internet Explorer 6.0, 5.5 (note: Explorer 5.0 is not supported: will function but shows visual quirks)
    • Mozilla/Firefox
  • Mac OS X
Changed:
<
<
    • Safari 1.2

    • Safari 2.0.3
 
    • Mozilla/Firefox

Not tested, but will probably work (let me know):
 
  • *nix
    • Mozilla/Firefox
Line: 35 to 43
 
  • Download the ZIP file from the Skin Home page (see below)
  • Unzip PatternSkin.zip in your twiki installation directory

If this still does not work, contact the administrator who installs skins.

Creating your own look

It is easy to tune the look and feel of PatternSkin by changing the color and space (margin, padding) settings in the Style Sheet files.

You may also choose to radically change the look and create a PatternSkin-based new skin. This is easier than to create a skin by writing new template files; you can concentrate on how things should look instead of what elements should get displayed.

You can either:

  • Change the layout.css and style.css attachment files for this topic (upload updated versions)
  • In TWikiPreferences, point the variables TWIKILAYOUTURL and TWIKISTYLEURL to other attachments, perhaps in another topic (your new skin topic?)

See for practical details: PatternSkinCustomization
The CSS classes that PatternSkin uses are documented in PatternSkinCss.

Customization

See: PatternSkinCustomization, PatternSkinPalette?
